The first teaser trailer for Marvel’s ‘The Defenders’ made me so angry

The Defenders Trailer

Look, if we’re being honest with ourselves we can admit that the past few Marvel movies have been… not great. They’re all still wonderfully entertaining thanks to huge budgets and compelling characters, but I’d wager that there aren’t many people out there who would argue that Avengers, Iron Man and Captain America movies have been getting better as they progress. That noticeable decline is one of the reasons I’m so excited for The Defenders, an upcoming new Netflix exclusive show that will combine the stories of four characters from the Marvel universe similar to what we’ve seen in The Avengers.

But the first teaser trailer Marvel just release didn’t pique my interest — it just made me angry.

I was so let down by recent Marvel movies like Iron Man 3 and Avengers: Age of Ultron that I didn’t even bother to see Civil War, instead opting to wait for it to hit TV. The storylines in the franchise’s past few movies have been a bit — how can I put this nicely? — terrible. Meanwhile, the first two seasons of Marvel’s series Daredevil have been terrific as was Jessica Jones, marking a very promising start to Marvel’s Netflix offshoot.

That’s why I’m holding onto hope that next year’s The Defenders is going to be great. It’ll bring Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist together in one terrific series, and the first teaser trailer was just released from San Diego Comic-Con.

It’s pure evil.

The new series won’t kick off until next year but if you’re going to release a teaser trailer, at least give us something. Instead, all we get is… well… watch for yourself:

The Defenders will premiere exclusively on Netflix sometime in 2017.
